To Wake In A Dream, To Taste Heaven In Hell
I cried myself to sleep one night,
And dreamt a dream of you
A wish, a desire, a burning need
To fill the craving to this feeling
The daylight breaks and still I want more
I pray for just a few
My thoughts through out the day,
Strewn between the reality I must carry out,
With the unhappiness I feel,
For the happiness I dreamt about
My mind can not settle
So I wait by the window
For the night to fall upon me
With the stars coming out,
I lie myself down
And wonder if one of those lights,
Is shining for me.
To wake up in a dream
Or to dream while awake
Just to bring the night to day,
Was my only only wish,
And to my very aching soul,
It's match was finally made,
My whole body a fire
From the brilliant spectacle before me,
Travelling through fantasies
Meeting the paradise ahead, just to be too far out of reach.
I felt I'd had a taste of heaven in hell,
And got burned at the stake for sneaking such a pleasurable delight.
My heart raced, and pounded.
It danced and it soared
And then it ached more than before.
The knowledge of this love,
Hurt more not having it,
Then not knowing it.
And then one day it left,
Like a thief in the dark,
It stole my heart, and took a it of my soul.
I was never to know of this wondrous being
And when days became weeks,
I fooled myself into forgetting
But the direction had already been changed,
My path written by my every move
And just when I had the blindfold pulled tight,
My bright angel came forth to rescue me,
To deliver me from my madness,
To share a bit of my pain,
To lighten my heavy load,
To guide and protect me from harm's way.
This wondrous source of light,
Belongs to my handsome prince, my angel, my warrior.
To this powerful source, I reach out my hand.
My offerings of love,
My heart, my soul,
Entrusted to thou.
